How To: Play Super Nintendo Games on iPhone / iPad in iOS 8 [No Jailbreak]

Craving Super Nintendo games like Super Mario Kart, Super Punch-Out and more on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 8 without a jailbreak? Well today just might be your lucky day as iDeviceHype has shared a new, quickly and easily method to the “SiOS Super Nintendo emulator” on any iOS 8 device without requiring any modification or jailbreak.


Simply follow the steps below to enjoy Super Nintendo games on your iPhone / iPad (via AppAdvice):

Step 1:

Open Safari on your iPhone / iPad and open the following link:

Step 2:

Tap the Apps tab, swipe down to SiOS and then select Install.

Step 3:

Now Go to Settings > General > Date and Time. Make sure that the Set Automatically button is switched “off”.

Step 4:

You’ll now then need to manually set the date back two months (or two years as Firas mentions in the comments). Once SiOS is finished installing, open it on your device and then tap Trust when asked.

Step 5:

Find a ROM to download. Save it into SiOS and start playing.

*You can now change back to normal

That’s it, enjoy!

    In step 4, you need to set the time back 2 *years* ago, not 2 *months*.

    Worked for me 🙂

    Hey Usman, Popcorn Time allows you to use the same workaround too. You can stream movies right to your iPhone from the torrent.

    Easy search will find it.

  • I’d be wary of installing that Popcorn Time ‘knockoff’ as it comes from a shady Chinese source. Just sayin’ though.

    Only question is, how safe is all this?

  • ????Dennis

    Yeah just posted asking the same thing G. How about this emulator. Can we install this without worry?

  • I haven’t installed it myself as I don’t play emulators.

    It doesn’t work for me :/ no matter what I do, it doesn’t install the SiOS app.

    Once you hit install, go to your settings and change the month to August. During that time it will keep saying that it won’t install. Keep hitting “retry” until the date is changed.
